PEIRCE EDITION PROJECT FINDING AIDS

 

MAX H. FISCH ARCHIVES

This finding aid will assist the researcher in locating materials found in this Archive.  The electronic version of this finding aid can be searched by words or phrases using the Find function in Acrobat Reader.

The supplement finding aid deals with materials that are not in the main files, A07-A13, used by Max Fisch during his time with the Peirce Edition Project, but with materials that were received at a later time. This finding aid does not list the contents of every folder in every drawer.

Some files are restricted.  The restriction comes for one of several reasons: the material is very rare and needs to have controlled access, the material is an original with copies available elsewhere in the collection, the material is very fragile and should have limited access, or the material is of such a nature that a serious scholar is needed to understand the material fully within its context.  Restricted access files are marked with a red dot, ●. The permission of the Director of the Peirce Edition Project or the Director of the Institute for American Thought is needed to access this material.

IAT Online Library Catalog

In late 2013, the IAT began the process of moving its extensive library holdings to a new online library catalog. The new catalog allows researchers to search for specific materials such as books and journals in the Max H. Fisch Library. Eventually, the online catalog will replace the older EndNote Library Catalog.

As of January 2016, over 1,500 of the 14,000 library holdings have been added to the online catalog.

Please contact the IAT Librarian with any questions about the online catalog.

MAX H. FISCH CATALOG

IU Faculty and Staff can download the latest version of EndNote for free at IUWare. Select the appropriate operating system (Windows, Mac, or Linux). The EndNote program can be found under the “Organization” tab.

This catalog represents the books and journals of the various collections at the Institute for American Thought. You will be able to view and search for the books and journals donated to the IAT by Max H. Fisch, Peter Hare, Carolyn Eisele, Charles Morris, and many more. In order to search for items, just select “All References” at the top left, and perform your search. The ‘Notes’ section of every record will point you to the appropriate section of the library, and call numbers will allow you to easily access the material.

If you find errors or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the webmaster at iat@iupui.edu who will forward the message to the appropriate person.
